A pal has a Post Office Broadband connection. His email is [email protected],co.uk. He can receive emails OK on any client i.e. Out Xpress, Thunderbird etc but cannot send 'em. The email will not connect to the Post Office SMTP server and times out. I have tried this from multiple PC's and cannot send. Emails can be sent if we logon directly to his account via the web.I rang the Post Office and explained and they cannot provide a solution and all they say is that if we can logon and send, then that is the end of their support. NOT MUCH B...Y SUPPORT THERE THEN!
Before I terminate my Post Office B.Band account has anyone any ideas.
Oh, and when we ping smtp.mypostoffice.co.uk all we get is request timed out.
Sorry guys, yes its the same problem. I should have followed up on that. I'll close that issue. My ISP smtp is blueyonder but for my bt accounts I input the SMTP as smtp.btinternet.com and they work fine. My pals PC is direct with Post Office B.Band and he has exactky the same problem. I'm just trying to sort it for him remote from his PC rather than spending hours in front of it.
Tried changing the SMTP entry to blueyonder and it keeps shoving up the enter Pwd window.
